The song developed from sessions lead singer Ian McCulloch had with three London-based musicians.[1] McCulloch said, "I thought [guitarist Will Sergeant and I] needed to do stuff differently, but so the result still sounded like the Bunnymen."[1] McCulloch felt that the sound was right and he and Sergeant returned to the studio to record material for Fountain, including "Think I Need It Too".


NME compared "Think I Need It Too" to Echo & the Bunnymen's 1987 song "Lips Like Sugar" when they described it as an "anthemic, radio friendly love song".[2] They went on to describe McCulloch's voice as "the lustiest voice we've heard for years". Awarding the single four stars, News of the World described the song as one of the band's "best ballads in years".[3]

"Think I Need It Too" reached number thirty-nine on Billboard magazine's Hot Singles Sales chart in the United States.[4]
